Zebras are herbivores. In addition to grass, shrubs, twigs, leaves, and even bark are also part of their diet. A more adaptable digestive system allows the zebra to survive in low nutrient conditions and is superior to other herbivores.

Zebras are more resistant to African diseases than horses, but zebras have never been domesticated into domestic animals and have not been able to crossbreed with horses.

Humans have been domesticating and using animals for thousands of years, and wild horses and elephants are some of the more successful examples.

However, for zebras, an animal that looks similar to wild horses, humans have been unable to complete their domestication, why?

First of all, zebras are social animals, and they are very savvy at quickly analyzing their environment and determining the intentions of unfamiliar species.

Once humans are identified by zebras as a potential threat, they will adopt escape and attack strategies.

In contrast, wildebeest and elephants are more likely to be naturally submissive and trusting of humans.

Second, zebras have a complex nervous system, and they possess a relatively high level of activity and judgment.

If a zebra is trapped in a small space or suffers any form of depression or fright, it will show extreme fear and aggression, which can be a great challenge to its handlers.

In addition, zebras are smaller and more agile, and they have a greater ability to escape predators in the wild.

This requires the handler to be more flexible and resourceful to master the skills and methods of taming.

The zebra's social nature, neurological complexity, size, and mobility make it impossible for humans to domesticate them as easily as wild horses and elephants.

However, the same qualities that make this animal so adaptable also give them an advantage in surviving in the wild, which is why zebras are nature's shining stars in the African savannah.

They are more energetic and active than many other animals. The zebra's speed and agility make it more difficult to control them.

When zebras hunt in the wild, they must evade predators, so they already have an instinctive response to escape and fight back and are very difficult to subdue by either creature.

Zebras are very difficult to tame. They are shrewd, sensitive, have a complex nervous system, are fast and agile, due to the many uncertainties they have to face while in the wild, in addition to their traits that guarantee their survival.

Although humans cannot control zebras through taming, they are still a key component of many African savannah ecosystems.
